Does'nt this give a little more validity to the claim that we (or our ancestors to be precise) may have been created in a lab somewhere!

Being able to do it ourselves, we have to wonder whether an advanced civilization, somewhere closeby in our region of the galaxy, came upon a promising young solar system. And seeded it with life!

Perhaps to even come back at different periods of time to give it a nudge ...

And perhaps we will continue this circle of life someday!!!

"Creating protocells has the potential to shed new light on our place in the universe," Bedau said. "This will remove one of the few fundamental mysteries about creation in the universe and our role."

And several scientists believe man-made life forms will one day offer the potential for solving a variety of problems, from fighting diseases to locking up greenhouse gases to eating toxic waste.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. However, I am not just focusing on the news item - which is very interesting anyway - but more on the implication of such a development. And also the possibility of certain claims that have been made regarding our very origins!
